Book Review: Sergeant Sexypants by Tawna Fenske
Book Description: Bree Bracelyn doesn’t date cops. It’s a personal rule that quavers when Austin Dugan flashes his baby blues—and his badge—at Ponderosa Resort’s grand opening. Bree’s the family fixer, running the resort’s PR and her siblings’ lives with cheerful efficiency. But one thing in Bree’s past can’t ever be fixed, which is why she’s staying the hell away from Officer Hottie.
Austin’s heart tacks up a wanted poster with Bree’s name the instant he lays eyes on her. Okay, the no-cops rule is an obstacle, but not impossible for a guy ambitious enough to be a shoe-in as the next police chief. Besides, he knows Bree’s into him, whether they’re flirting over weird flatware or getting frisky in the front seat of his vintage Volvo.
As Bree and Austin bond over cupcakes and hot springs hookups, Bree knows it’s a matter of time before the skeletons in her closet topple into a messy heap on Austin’s squeaky-clean life. Is there hope for a happy ending, or will their love end up DOA?

I have read all three books of this series and I have to say this is my favorite so far! We always read about the tortured man, or the one that's a bit of an asshole and we tend to shrug and nod. Well, let me introduce you to Austin Dugan. Hot, dedicated, AND a good guy? Did we somehow win the book boyfriend lottery? I feel like we did. Did I mention he loves dogs? *Swoon*
I was expecting to laugh with this book, because after all, it IS in the romantic comedy genre. I was expecting to find some yummy, sexy scenes,because, duh? However, I was not expecting to go Awwww! *heart melts*. And I think that right there is what makes Sergeant Sexypants so successful for me. This book checks every single checkmark I have when it comes to romance novels. Funny? Check! Sexy? Check! Heart-melting? Check!! Enough reality as to not make it ridiculous? Check!
Austin and Bree click from the get-go. However, when the skeIetons in Bree's closet threaten to drown her and ruin what she found with Austin, he finds a way to help her come face to face with her past and find closure. There are some serious obstacles in the way, but they find a way to make it work. Is there anything more romantic than that? I think not! I wholeheartedly recommend this book and give it an enthusiastic five out of five!
